I don't want to get too in-depth about this issue because there are so many great sources out there about climate change already. Here are just a few reliable, respected sources: the BBC, the United Nations, and The Environmental Protection Agency.
The thing is, most of us look at this as a huge problem that we can't individually influence, and so don't bother doing the things we can do, and the problem continues to esculate at an alarming rate. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. If everybody tried to be a little more environmentally friendly at home in their daily lives, it would add up to huge effects that could really help our planet.
Here are a few things that we can all do.
Try to reduce and reuse.
Make items, like clothing, last longer.
Cut back on what we send to landfill by composting and recycling.
Use less electricity and water.
Use less chemicals and more environmentally friendly products.
Everything adds up either for good or bad. Even the little things can make a difference.
